2. Incredible moment bloke finds moment deadly brown snake hiding under his DUVET22:47[−]

THIS is the horrifying moment a man lifts up his duvet to find a snake lurking in his bed sheets.

Australian Jimmy Blain noticed the tail of the reptile and then decided to film himself raising up the bed sheets.

The horror of it all.. that bed sheet should be better tucked in better and reptile needs removing too

To his horror he found an eastern brown snake which is one of the most deadly in the world.

He can be heard yelping f*** that – why are you in my bed?

Ha, ha, ha Jesus Christ. Out please.

While doing so the snake’s forked tongue can be seen zipping in and out.

If it had sunk its fangs into Jimmy its venom would have paralysed him and stopped his blood clotting.

He would have collapsed within a few minutes and if not taken to hospital to be given antivenom he would have died.

Earlier this month, a heavily pregnant woman and her unborn baby died after a suspected brown snake bite in the Western Australian outback.

8. Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra review the best sub-?400 phablet you can get22:20[−]

Sony has discovered its smartphone niche.

If the company can keep cranking out solid, mid-range phablets like the new Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra, it may yet get its groove back.

After some fiddling, daytime pics looked pretty good

The 23-megapixel snapper is as good as you’re going to get on a mid-range phone

It’s no secret that the Japanese manufacturer’s smartphones don’t attract anywhere near the amount of fanfare as its gaming and TV hardware.

This despite the Xperia range’s powerful cameras and high-res displays, which in the case of the ?649 XZ Premium goes up to stunning 4K.

At ?379.99, the XA2 Ultra retains some of those perks and sheds others.

You get a solid 23-megapixel rear snapper, with 4K video recording, and slow-motion video at 120fps.

Gone are the AI camera tricks (like the XZ1’s 3D Creator tool that lets you make shareable cut-outs from your pics), and the insane 960fps slo-motion video.

Regardless, you’re still left with a superior rear camera for a mid-range device (that’s especially good at taking low-light photos).

Low-light and nighttime pics were even better
Saqib Shah, The Sun

Daytime snaps, on the other hand, require fiddling with the brightness even in the default Superior Auto mode. And, if you switch to manual, you’ll find a plethora of settings that can assist with your outdoor and nighttime shots.

Here’s a tip: try enabling HDR mode to add some sharpness to those pics.

Get more mates in those group selfies with the Xperia XA2 Ultra’s wide-angle front camera
Sony

But, Sony’s reserved the best for its front-facing snapper, adding not one but two cameras: there’s the regular 16-megapixel 80-degree wide-angle option, plus an 8-megapixel 120-degree ultra-wide camera.

The latter lets you cram even more mates into your group selfies at the expense of some resolution, meaning you can leave that lame selfie stick at home.

Add in 4K video recording with 120fps slo-motion capture (which lets you remix the pace of your action clips in edit mode) and you’ve got a quality package.

Design-wise, it’s the same-old from Sony. The Xperia range isn’t known for its looks, and the XA2 Ultra, with its big borders that add even more phone on top of an already huge 6-inch display (which is larger than the ?999 iPhone X’s screen), does little to change that.

And, at 221g, the handset is heavier than the latest phablets from Apple, Samsung, and Google.

Sean Keach, The Sun
Sony’s latest phablet is a bit heavier than other big phones[/caption]

Sean Keach, The Sun
The 6-inch, full HD display is a highlight[/caption]

To ease the pain, there’s a fingerprint sensor positioned below the rear camera that instantly unlocks the phone the majority of the time.

Of course, that ginormous, 1080p full HD display, is great for entertainment purposes. Turn it to landscape mode, and you’re in for an immersive YouTube, Netflix, or gaming experience (for a smartphone, anyway).

And, all the while, its surprisingly solid Snapdragon 630 processor (paired with 4GB of RAM) is working away in the background, keeping things running smoothly.

The icing on the cake is the robust 3,580 mAh battery that lasts more than two days on a single charge.

Out of the box, the XA2 Ultra comes with 32GB of storage and Android Oreo, with Sony’s skin layered on top.

VERDICT

Between its solid Xperia compacts and its new mid-range phablet, Sony is releasing phones that we never knew we wanted. The Xperia XA2 Ultra is in a league of its own. You can pony up a bit more for the OnePlus 5T if you’re after more resolution and processor power. But, in the sub-?400 category, this is the best big phone you can buy right now.

9. Winter Olympics 2018: Ice dancer Gabriella Papadakis left red-faced after wardrobe malfunction during her routine22:20[−]

FRENCH ice dancer Gabriella Papadakis had her breast exposed to millions of Winter Olympics viewers worldwide after suffering a wardrobe malfunction during her routine.

The 22-year-old skater and partner Guillaume Cizeron, 23, were competing in the short dance when her dress somehow got unclipped at the back.

Papadakis tried in vain to cover up and eventually managed to clip her top back together.

Incredibly, the duo managed to shrug off the distraction and record a score of 81.93 – enough to move up to second behind Canada’s Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue.

Moir and Virtue’s 83.67 broke their own world record but it was their French rivals who had fans talking.

Social media users were quick to praise Papadakis for bravely carrying on, while others blasted broadcasters for showing a slow-mo replay.

Papadakis is the second skater to suffer a wardrobe malfunction after Yura Min’s Olympic debut was hit by a similar issue.

The South Korean star’s skimpy red dress slipped just seconds into her short dance routine, threatening to reveal just a little too much to the millions watching around the world.

As she was spun around by partner Alexander Gamelin she had to keep adjusting her red top to prevent showing off more than was intended.

At one point the top slipped just a little too far but instead of going into a flap Yura just carried on with her well-rehearsed routine.

In an interview today however Jennifer insisted that remark was simply an inside joke.

She explained to Ronan Keating on Magic: Backstage Joanna and I were about to go out and she was going to present me. So Im like, just adjective after adjective, tall, beautiful, just say that Im this and that, and she was like, alright darling, so it was an inside joke and she went on and said all these nice things to me, so when I got onto to the podium I said, that was a bit much like after Id just spent backstage telling her to be nice to me.

The Oscar winner went on to reveal that if shed responded differently it would have looked as if she was accepting a compliment Mean Girl style.

The 71-year-old actress kicked off the awards by welcoming Hollywood star Jennifer on stage to present the first gong – with a gushing introduction.

She said: Right lets start giving out some of those beautiful BAFTAs shall we?

And we start with the award for Outstanding British Film and who better to kick the whole evening off than the hottest actress on the planet.

Soon to be seen in Red Sparrow, its the ravishing Jennifer Lawrence.

Looking a little uncomfortable, Jennifer replied in a rather lacklustre manner: Hi, that was a bit much but thank you Joanna.

 Jennifer's reaction surprised fans at home

Those watching at home couldnt quite believe she had replied to the Absolutely Fabulous legend with what seemed to be an off tone and took to Twitter to comment on it.

One person blasted: Hahaa, who does Jennifer Lawrence think she is?? Stuck up cow. If I was Joanna Lumley I know exactly where I’d stick that #BAFTA #EEBAFTAs.

While another wrote: But do have to say that #jenniferlawrence was very rude in her comments to #JoannaLumley @ #BAFTAs uncalled for.

And someone else tweeted: How rude was Jennifer Lawrence to Joanna Lumley? #EEBAFTAs.

A further person ranted: “Jennifer Lawrence is not welcome in the U.K. if she thinks its ok to disrespect Joanna Lumley. Imagine licking Kardashian arse but shading Joanna Mother F**king Lumley. Overrated rodent.”

An upset Joanna Lumley fan added: “Who is a Jennifer Lawrence??? Never heard of her. It might be a good idea for her to have some respect for Joanna Lumley who has proved her worth in every area of TV/stage/Film. She certainly will never reach the heights of Joanna.”

Others however thought Jennifer had done nothing wrong and took to social media to offer support.

One person wrote: Jennifer Lawrence can’t even breath without being attacked nowadays. Stfu. First of all, “the hottest” is not exactly a compliment that every woman would feel comfortable hearing and she was far from being rude, get over yourselves ?#EEBAFTAs.

While another tweeted: “Joanna Lumley does not no enough about Jennifer Lawrence to use appropriate language in her intro to Jennifer Lawrence. Jennifer Lawrence reaction was humble, polite and courteous. You need to lighten up and be ashamed of your biased view.(sic)”

12. Inside Blue Ivys ?million wardrobe, with a ?7000 Mischka Aoki dress and Louis Vuitton handbag22:11[−]

WITH parents as stylish as Beyonce and Jay-Z, it seems impossible for Blue Ivy Carter not to have the most enviable wardrobe.

Unsurprisingly, the six-year-old’s outfits are straight from high-end designers, so we revealed the true cost of her of lavish wardrobe.

Blue Ivy was spotted with her mum Beyonce at the NBA All-Star Game holding a ?1250 Louis Vuitton handbag

Blue Ivy attended the NBA All-Star game in Los Angeles yesterday, and was carrying a ?1230 Louis Vuitton handbag.

Another one of her handbags is Valentino, and costs ?1765 – so you may have some saving to do if you want your little one to steal her style.

She also regularly shops at Gucci, and has rocked numerous dresses, blouses, and bags.

It’s clear that the famous child is just as fashion forward as her pop star mum and rapper dad.

It’ s no surprise that everyone secretly (or not so secretly) idolises Beyonce, but now it seems that everyone will also be coveting the wardrobe of her daughter.

We can’t wait to see what looks she pulls together this year – as children grow out of their clothes so quickly, we must expect more and more impressive outfits.

Perhaps Beyonce will get her an Instagram account of her own, as everybody loves a lavish #ootd, and a few may want to pinch her look for their own kids.

For more pricey wardrobes, check out Saffron Drewitt-Barlow’s swanky closet, inclusing a ?400k Faberge ring.

Blue Ivy isn’t the only one rocking a pink suit, plenty of other A-listers have donned one on the red carpet… and they look great.

Ever wondered how to wear the trench? Stylish since 1912, this classic coat is the key to a staple wardrobe.

With her flat stomach on full display, Amanda leaned back a little and glanced up towards the sun, with a pair of sunglasses and a hat protecting her from its rays.

The 47-year-old gave women half her age a run for their money with her incredible figure, and captioned her impressive picture: “#chilling #minibreak I #love #school #holidays #Dubai @leroyalmeridien2”.

Her fans were quick to praise Amanda on her physique, with one writing: “How do you stay in such great shape? You look amazing” while another added: “Wow!! Stunning.”

A third agreed, posting: “And they say the perfect woman doesn’t exist? I beg to differ. Beautiful inside and out.”

The holiday comes a couple of weeks after Amanda denied having a ‘heated exchange’ with Ant McPartlin while filming Britain’s Got Talent

Amanda’s holiday comes just weeks after she was forced to deny she had a “heated exchange” with Britain’s Got Talent co-star Ant McPartlin.

The pair seemed to be having a tense conversation as they waited to have their promotional pictures taken at The Lowry Theatre in Manchester earlier this month.

The duo looked tense before one of their co-workers then interrupted them, bringing their conversation to an end.

But sources close to the pair insist they were just chatting before going out for a photo call.

The source said: “They weren’t backstage or anything, they were in front of everyone.

“Does anyone really think they would have a blazing row where everyone could see them?”

A representative for Ant insisted the pair were not having a row, telling The Sun Online: “Ant and Amanda were not having any form of argument.

The judges and hosts were pictured messing around on a private jet soon after Amanda and Ant insisted they were just having a conversation

“They were literally having a conversation.”

A source close to Amanda said: “Amanda and Ant are just chatting. This picture was taken whilst they were posing in front of hundreds of fans and press.

“There simply wasnt any form of heated discussion whatsoever.”

Meanwhile, Amanda brushed off the reports with her own picture taken at the show.

Alongside a snap of Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Ant and Dec, she wrote: “Loving #Manchester @bgt. #fabulous #first #day up here – loads of fun. Too much #laughter.”

17. How old is Sylvester Stallone, what is the new dead hoax, whats his net worth and what are the Rocky stars biggest movies?22:01[−]

SYLVESTER Stallone is an American actor and filmmaker known for his roles in some of Hollywood’s most iconic action movies – most notably as Rocky Balboa in the epic boxing saga.

How much do you know about the films he has starred in and what was he accused of in 2017?

The Rocky star is the proud father of three daughters
AP:Associated Press

Who is Sylvester Stallone?

Sylvester, 71, was born on July 6, 1946 and played Rocky in the well-known series between 1976 and 2015.

He also played soldier John Rambo from the four Rambo films, which came out between 1982 and 2008, and was Barney Ross in the three The Expendables films between 2010 and 2014.

Impressively, he wrote or co-wrote most of the 14 films in all three of these franchises, and also directed the movies.

The Rocky film props have been placed in the Smithsonian museum, and Stallone was voted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2010.

He stands at just 5 foot 8 inches tall.

He is worth a massive ?301million.

What are Sylvester Stallones Rocky films about?

Stallone created iconic character Robert Rocky Balboa for the Rocky series and played him in all seven films.

The boxer is shown as an everyday guy who went the distance and overcame life obstacles to become a professional in his field.

He is loosely based on Chuck Wepner, a boxer who fought Muhammad Ali, but the name and fighting style came from boxing legend Rocky Marciano.

Many consider Stallones role as Rocky to be what started his film career, as he earned Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations for his performance.

He reprised the role in 2015 for Creed and received his first Golden Globe for best Supporting Actor.

Who are Sylvester Stallones daughters Sophia, Sistine and Scarlett?

Sophia, Sistine and Scarlett are the daughters of Stallone and model-turned-businesswoman Jennifer Flavin.

Sophia studied communications (with a minor in entrepreneurship and film) at the University of Southern California.

Sistine Stallone has taken after her mother, Jennifer, and has embarked on a modelling career.

She is signed to IMG models and has appeared in the pages of Teen Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, and Town & Country.

The youngest of the sisters, Scarlet Stallone, is frequently involved on dad Slys Instagram feed where he occasionally mocks her with dad jokes and has also proudly shared video of her competing in sports.

What was the Sly Stallone death hoax?

On February 19, 2018, a rumour that Sly was dead swept the internet once again 18 months after it first surfaced.

Facebook users reported seeing a fraudulent message in September 2016 claiming the actor had been found dead at his LA home.

But the rumour has now returned to social media a year-and-a-half later.

The return of the hoax appears to have been sparked by the release of a poster for Creed II the next installment in the Rocky film series.

This Facebook message was linked to a website known for creating and sharing celebrity death hoaxes. The site was also responsible for previous death hoaxes involving Vin Diesel, Nicolas Cage, Jaden Smith, Jim Carrey, Angelina Jolie and John Cena.

Stallone himself posted on social media to confirm he was still alive and urged his fans to “ignore” such stupidity.

He added: “Remember to always grab LIFE by the throat and do not let go until you succeed.”

What is the rape allegation against Sylvester Stallone?

Sylvester Stallone has denied raping a woman in 1990.

The 71-year-old actor told Radar: “That never ever happened. This is not true.”

Police in Santa Monica said that they were investigating a complaint that was made in November 2017 against the Rocky star, relating to an alleged incident 27 years ago.

“Its one thing to go after me, but they really attack the innocent the people that are going along with their lives, their reputations are sullied by this,” Stallone said referring to his wife, Jennifer Flavin and their three daughters.

“They are carrying the burden of a lie for the rest of their lives. Cruel is cruel. You dont have to make things up.”

Although the ten-year statute of limitations has expired, authorities are said to be investigating her claim and that the district attorney’s office will decided whether or not to prosecute.

The actor’s attorney says Stallone intends to counteract by asking police to charge her with filing a false report

18. Toblerone ice lollies have arrived and everyone is nuts for them21:59[−]

THE weather may still be grey and gloomy, but if youre dreaming of warmer days, then treating yourself to a frozen pud may cheer you up.

Swiss chocolate brand Toblerone has released some new ice creams, and they look utterly delicious.

The desserts are made of creamy chocolate and honey ice cream, then slathered in Swiss milk chocolate.

Anything Toblerone flavoured wouldnt be complete without the decadent nougat, and the ice cream is filled pieces, as well as in the outer shell chocolate.

The traditional triangular shape has also been honoured, so you can feel like youre eating one gigantic frozen piece.

Theyre available to buy in packs of three for ?3, or in a few retailers as a single stick for ?1.80.

Understandably, chocolate fans are loving the new product and have taken to Twitter to share their excitement.

One user told others to “drop everything” and another said “I have got to find this Toblerone ice cream!”

It’s not available online yet, so you’ll need to head to the shops to get your hands on a pack – but if you’re a fan of the delicious swiss chocolate, then it will probably be worth it.

19. Is it illegal to park on the pavement, whats the fine and are the rules different in London?21:55[−]

DRIVERS who mount kerbs and park on pavements could soon be hit with a ?70 fine.

While outlawed across the capital since 1974, the practice is still completely legal in the rest of country. Here’s the scoop and how to avoid being caught out…

Drivers who park on pavements outside the capital could now be faced with a fine

Is it illegal to park on the pavement?

Despite what many people believe there is no law in the UK against parking on the pavement.

Rule 22 of the Highway Code says: “You must not park partially or wholly on the pavement in London, and should not do so elsewhere unless signs permit it.

“Parking on the pavement can obstruct and seriously inconvenience pedestrians, people in wheelchairs or with visual impairments and people with prams or pushchairs.”

Outside of the capital, you are permitted to partially park your motor on the pavement however it must not be causing an obstruction.

Last year the Local Government association pushed for councils up and down the UK to be able to adopt similar rules as London.

Spokesperson Martin Tett said at the time: “Local authorities need this power to respond to concerns raised by their communities, for example if a street is becoming dangerously congested or pedestrians are being forced to step out into the street to get around parked vehicles.

“This is particularly dangerous for blind or partially sighted people and mums and dads with prams.”

What is the fine for parking on the pavement?

Get caught parking on the pavement in London and you will face a hefty ?70 fine.

You may be able to get a discount of 50 per cent on the parking charge if you pay within 14 days.

If a Penalty Charge Notice was issued by the local council, unless you have grounds to appeal, you should pay up. You’ll normally get a half-price discount if you pay within 14 days.

A Penalty Charge Notice means you’ve broken the law. But if you do have a compelling or very persuasive reason for appealing, the council can use its discretion to decide whether to cancel the notice.

Are the rules different in London?

How does the pavement parking ban in London work?

Parking on pavements has been banned in London since the 1974 Greater London Council (General Powers) Act.

The act forbids motorists to park on urban roads in the capital with their cars wheels resting on footways, grass verges or land between carriageways.

There are exceptions to this rule in some areas.

These are clearly marked with special blue parking signs, showing a car with one wheel on the kerb.

Other times, parking bays drawn out with white lines extending onto footways to show that parking there is permitted.

In areas where it is not allowed, the law provides protection for certain circumstances, such as drivers who are unloading goods, putting out a fire or saving someones life.

Those who break the rules can be subject to a fine.

20. Is this the MOST annoying video clip youve ever seen in your life21:46[−]

THIS video clip will probably be the most infuriating one youll ever cast your eyes on.

The mind-bending visual of a coastal peninsula has gone viral after puzzling thousands of people who had the misfortune to click on it.

Have you worked out how this is done?
Have you worked out how this is done?

It is a satellite image of a stretch of coastline and appears to be zooming in on a particular spot.

But after few dizzying minutes it appears that the video clip is fooling you with a really sly optical illusion.

So rather than focusing in it brings you back to the beginning – again and again and again.

For the clip is only about two seconds long and is on a loop.

Then after wasting your time watching it, it is hard not to stare at it even longer to see how it managing to con your eyes.

Yet as you do so it can leave you feeling a little sick.

One Reddit user said: “I haven’t been affected by any GIF like this one. My stomach definitely felt queezy.”

Another said: “Me too. My stomach got queasy also as my brain was expecting a zoomed land image.

“This is a head-melter. But brilliant”

The clip is understood to be the work of a genius Polish visual artist who goes by the name of Feliks Konczakowski.

He describes himself as a visual artist who probably comes from Mars.

And after checking out his work it is hard to disagree.

21. Winter Olympics 2018: Ski jump arena doubles up as football stadium for South Korean side21:44[−]

THIS is the incredible football stadium that doubles as a ski jump venue.

The Winter Olympics in South Korea is capturing hearts and minds, and the Alpensia Ski Jump stadium is capturing the attention.

Home of South Korean football outfit Gangwon, there are only three stands at the ground.

That’s because behind one of the goals is the ending of a giant ski slope.

Oxford United in League Two of English football famously only have three stands as behind one of their goals is a huge car park.

But this South Korean version is truly unique.

It is a case of killing two birds with one stone, for sure.

The skiing season on South Korea runs from November to March.

Then from March to November the football gets under way, so designers decided to build the ultimate, all-purpose sport stadium.

And Gangwon were clearly delighted at the chance to call it ‘home’.

The club have had five homes since they were founded in 2008.

However, it is not the most accessible of locations, with little in the way of transport services to the stadium.

They were still together yesterday morning. But then David sent her a voice note on WhatsApp to tell her it was over by the afternoon. Shes devastated and feels betrayed.

Theyve been dating seriously for a couple of months. David was the one who asked Danielle to be his girlfriend and even told her that he loved her.

Hes been going to auditions and speaking to producers behind her back. Its awful. The women going on the show should know what hes really like. Its absolutely disgusting.

As with Love Island, viewers are able to vote off the contestants that don’t tickle their fancy.

They are also responsible for choosing which of the sexes comes out on top.

An investigation from Corriere della Sera found that Li’s debts have now culminated in being forced to declare himself bankrupt and his assets will be auctioned off on Taobao the Chinese version of Ebay.

The initial deal was frequently delayed as Li was unable to stump up the entire fee, and subsequently took out a loan from high-interest hedge fund Elliott Management.

“Someone once told me their friend had a surprise wedding and it stuck in my mind.”

Matthew added: “We couldnt have had a better response. People just screamed for about ten minutes!”

28. Air Force heroes who rescued tragic Brit Grand Canyon helicopter victims say it was tougher mission than Iraq and Afghanistan21:23[−]

A HERO US Air Force pilot who helped save the Grand Canyon helicopter crash survivors said it was his toughest ever mission.

British tourists Stuart Hill, 30, his girlfriend Becky Dobson, 27, and his older brother Jason Hill, 32, were all killed while celebrating Stuart’s 30th birthday when their sightseeing helicopter crashed into the Canyon in a storm last Saturday.

Honeymooners Ellie Milward, 29, Jonathan Udall, 32 and Jason’s girlfriend Jennifer Barham, 39, as well as American pilot Scott Booth, 42, survived the fiery crash but all remain in a critical condition in hospital in Las Vegas with severe burns and other injuries.

Two six man rescue teams from the US Air Force’s 66th Rescue Squadron based in Las Vegas, Nevada, were called in to extract the last survivor from the crash site and transport him to hospital – saving the man’s life.

Amazingly the crew haven’t been told which survivor they rescued – all they know is it was Jonathan Udall or Scott Booth as it was a man.

Captain Max Willet, who flew the Pave Hawk chopper which conducted the rescue to the Canyon, told Sun Online: “Hoisting someone out of the Grand Canyon sounds as hard as it was.

“That was the hardest hoist rescue I’ve ever done for sure, it was very, very challenging. I’ve been deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa and this was the hardest.”

The four survivors who managed to escape the fiery wreckage of the crash spent a freezing night in critical condition at the bottom of the mile deep valley.

They were kept alive by emergency first responders and brave tourists from other tours who clambered down to the remote area and treated them for nine hours before they could be moved to hospital.

Capt Willet said flying into the Canyon it looked like a black hole” as the moon was not out and they had to wear night vision googles to see anything.

As they descended they began to see the other rescue teams already on the scene and they landed 200 metres from the crash site for a brief on what needed doing.

He said: “Adrenaline is rolling, you want to do everything you can to save this guy but you don’t want to push to far and hurt more people, so it is a fine line to walk.

“It was a bad situation they were in, terrifying. It’s amazing how they survived, I put it down to a lot of good people taking good care of them keeping them warm, doing any medical procedures they know how.”

Conditions at the crash site were treacherous with the fire of the wreckage still smoldering but it was decided they would need to fly the helicopter right above it and hoist the patient into it – as moving him wasnt an option.

Capt Willet said: “Just getting to the crash site was very difficult because we could only go in one way and come out the same way. It was jagged and steep terrain around it, so our clearances with the rotor disc and the terrain was very close.

“There was a lot of dust because it was high winds, it was hazy and it was dark and we had very low lumination because the moon was not up.”

When in position two Pararescue (PJs) medics went down from the chopper on the hoist, connected it up to the stretcher and hauled the male patient up.

Capt Willet said: “The hoist itself was very difficult, it took the entire team to accomplish that.

“We got as low and close as we could but that just meant we had less clearance for our rotor blades and holding the hover itself was very difficult because of the bad light and gusty wind conditions and then making sure the survivor coming up isn’t getting slammed into the rocks going up or down was very difficult.”

He then had to reverse the helicopter out of the tight space they had just flown into – where any wrong move could prove catastrophic, he said: “Typically you take off forward but we had to back out into the Grand Canyon when we were leaving.”

The two medics then battled to keep the stricken patient alive for the 20 minute flight back to Las Vegas.

Capt Willet said: “When we picked up the survivor we flew back as fast as we could. Absolutely no question it saved his life getting him out when we did.

“The para-rescue men did a fantastic job working that patient, he was in very bad shape and I think what they did probably turned him around. He was critical.

“The first thing we all said as soon as we dropped him off at the hospital is we all hope he pulls through.
“I think it’s fair to say everybody that night did an outstanding job.”

Their motto is: These Things We Do, That Others May Live”, which Capt Willet says summed up how they felt about saving the survivor’s life, he said: “We’re glad we rescued them, we do a lot of training here day to day, it’s difficult, it’s rigorous and the opportunity to impact someone’s life positively give them a chance to keep on going that’s what we live for.

“I’d like them to know we did everything in our power to give them the best care, the fastest we could and we wish them a speedy recovery.”

29. Barcelona could hand Andre Gomes shock start against Chelsea in Champions League21:20[−]

The Tottenham and Juventus target wasn’t even in the 18 chosen to face Eibar last time out.

But it seems there could be a reprieve for the 24-year-old in the Champions League showdown at Stamford Bridge.

The Spanish giants are very keen to protect themselves against Remi Moses and Marcos Alonso.

And with Gomes on board they could play 4-4-2, offering a better defensive platform for this crucial first-leg tie.

Gomes moved to Barcelona from Valencia in the summer of 2016 and has made 47 appearances in all competitions.

Meanwhile, Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has stayed clear of contacting his former teammates in the build-up to the mouth-watering game.

He said: “We all want to live it from inside. These games require less talking and to focus on playing and giving all we have.

“Of course [it means a lot to play Barcelona]. To me, and to all players in the world, including the ones who were born there.

“But, whether you like Barcelona or not, the ‘special’ word can be understood in many ways and, as a footballer who likes to live great moments, you know Barcelona offers it, both playing for them or against them.

“It is going to be a fascinating round and I am sure we are all going to enjoy the games.”

Brannigan said: “Obviously the result last Friday was not the best way to start but we didn’t lose and we’re hoping we’ll add to the squad over the next day or so to improve it once more.”


31. Winter Olympics 2018: Meet Elizabeth Swaney the skier who came last in halfpipe event, cant do tricks and cannot even ski21:17[−]

AN AMERICAN skier representing Hungary at the Winter Olympics became a worldwide phenomenon in the women’s halfpipe – despite not being able to do any tricks.

Elizabeth Swaney finished 24th out of 24 after barely being able to make it into the air – but insisted she had “worked really hard for several years to achieve this.”

The Harvard-educated Silicon Valley worker, who qualifies for Hungary through her grandparents, finished last after laying down two basic runs that left her 40 points behind the 12th-placed qualifier for the final.

Swaney did manage to complete both of her runs without falling – but the only trick she attempted was a basic alley-oop as she only scored 30.00 and 31.40.

That resulted in her finishing 13.60 points behind Denmark’s Laila Friis-Salling – who slipped twice on both of her runs.

And the footage of Swaney quickly went viral on social media as many mocked the 33-year-old for her safety-first approach.

But she insisted she had been working on her performance.

Swaney said: “I have been focusing on my Olympic experience but also on the halfpipe here and trying to go higher each time and getting more spins in.”

She only started skiing aged 25 and previously competed for Venezuela before switching allegiance back in 2016 in order to prepare for Pyeongchang.

Swaney, who works for software engineers in the San Francisco area, raised funds online to help her Olympic ambitions and eventually managed to qualify for the Far East showpiece due to the number of competitions she had competed in.

Athletes need a consistent top-30 finish at World Cup events in order to reach the Olympics, and she persisted with easy runs and attempted little tricks to make sure she never fell and always recorded a score.

But despite her poor showing in South Korea, Swaney is hoping that she has inspired others.

She said: “It is an honour to compete at the Olympics and I am really excited to compete among other amazing women from across the world.

“I want to show others that freestyle skiing is possible and it is never too late to get into this sport, and to help others to dream and to progress the sport in Hungary.

“I hope this can be a platform to inspire others.”

And despite on-lookers around the globe being left bemused at Swaney’s run and some being heavily critical, she did receive support from one of her fellow competitors.

Canadian Cassie Sharpe, who qualified first with two high-scoring runs, said: “If you are going to put in the time and effort to be here, then you deserve to be here as much as I do.”
And Swaney herself is not too concerned over negativity towards her.

She added: “[People doubting me] actually motivates me to improve more.

“I worked really hard to come here and there are only 24 women in the world that could be in this final. So I use this as motivation.”

32. Passenger kicked off flight for farting isnt to blame plane travel makes you more gassy21:16[−]

AFTER a plane was forced to make an emergency landing over a passenger who kept farting, we had to ask – does flying make you extra windy?

As Sun Online reported two days ago, a Transavia flight was grounded over a brawl over a passenger loudly breaking wind.

A Transavia Airlines flight was grounded after passengers got into a fight about farting
Central European News

But the flight crew were less than sympathetic and when the man allegedly continued to guff without any attempt to hold back, a bust-up started.

The pilot of the Dutch low-cost airline Transavia Airlines flight decided to make an emergency landing at Vienna airport in Austria after tensions escalated.

But maybe the passenger needs a bit of sympathy.

Flying has a number of effects on the body your ears pop, your taste goes and you get drunk quicker – but the most antisocial problem is the increased number of farts the average passenger lets out.

The increased number of farts on planes is all down to the cabin pressure dropping

So why do people fart more on planes and what can you do to limit your gas?

Jacob Rosenberg, a clinical professor at the University of Copenhagen says it is all down to the cabin pressure dropping.

He made the discovery after noticing that his stomach had become bloated on a long-haul flight to New Zealand.

After clocking that his empty water bottle had expanded during the flight, then crumpled when it came back down to earth, he realised that the same could apply to his stomach.

He told the BBC: The pressure drops and the air must expand into more space.

According to Jacob, the gas sitting inside the stomach then expands by 30 per cent and it needs to go somewhere.

There are ways to limit the amount you gross people out though.

By eating more carbohydrates and less fibre at the airport and on the plane, you can limit your bloating.

Flight attendants also suffer from the problem, as The Sun revealed recently, cabin crew regularly perform aisle checks as an excuse to fart, which they call crop-dusting.

33. Top celebs support cystic fibrosis sufferer Mia Horgan, 7, who may get life-changing drug Orkambi after deal is reached with manufacturer21:15[−]

THE parents of a young girl with cystic fibrosis are very hopeful and excited that shes finally getting a life-changing drug off the HSE.

Seven-year-old Mia Horgan will get her hands on Orkambi within the next few months after a deal was reached with its manufacturer.

Louise, Denise and Karen back CF Irelands bid with Mia

The first-class pupil, from Castleknock in Dublin, is one of hundreds of Irish people who have the F508del mutation of the genetic condition.

She was diagnosed when she was just two weeks old after undergoing surgery for a bowel blockage.

But while the HSE agreed last year to pay for the drug for patients aged 12 and over, younger people like Mia had to wait.

However, after manufacturers Vertex received EU approval, patients aged between six and 11 will soon get the drug.

Orkambi is the first medication to treat the underlying cause of CF, and it will become another weapon in Mias arsenal that allows her to stay in peak health.

Mum Rebecca said exercise and physiotherapy currently help Mia to manage the condition while enjoying a normal life.

Young Mia with RTE sports journalist Evanne

Rebecca said: Shes had quite a few hospitalisations for CF-related issues, but none in the last two years. Shes been quite healthy.

She does get viruses and infections, but we manage these. Exercise is brilliant for her. She loves it and she does a lot.

She has a personal trainer who is fantastic, and she also does swimming and Zumba.

And while Mias parents are grateful shes getting Orkambi, they know drugs like this are only possible after years of research, which requires extensive fundraising.

Thats why Mia was out in force yesterday to call for 1,000 people to sign up for this years Womens Mini Marathon in aid of Cystic Fibrosis Ireland.

Rebecca said: CF Ireland is very supportive of its members, theyre helpful if we have any issues.

Orkambi

Theyre there to chat when you need it, to educate people and help improve things in the health system.

They were very helpful during the Orkambi campaign and in getting CF units in hospitals.

The medications arent there for every mutation yet but hopefully they will be in the future, which is why research is so important.

Funds from the charitys One in 1,000 campaign will also be used to support services for patients such as counselling, home exercise equipment, fertility treatment and transplant assessment.

Irish rugby star Louise Galvin, Red Rock and EastEnders actress Denise McCormack, RTE sports journalist Evanne Ni Chuilinn and blogger Karen Constantine are among the celebrities supporting CF Irelands bid.

Louise got involved after previously working as a physiotherapist at University Hospital Limerick.

She explained: I saw first-hand the impact that cystic fibrosis has on peoples lives and how it can hit everyday activities like literally not having enough breath to be able to climb the stairs.

The simple act of breathing is something most of us can luckily take for granted, but for a person with CF it can be hard going.

34. Airbnb threatened with 300,000 fine for illegal holiday rentals in Mallorca21:04[−]

AIRBNB is in hot water after advertising homes in Mallorca that don’t have a holiday rental license – something prohibited by law since last August.

According to the Spanish press, the Balearic Government has imposed a fine of 300,000 on the company, which now has 15 days to present claims.

According to Tenerife News, local government is alleging that the company has been repeatedly warned that it was breaking the law – but refused to ceased in its activity.

Since 2012, the Baleariac Tourism Law has forbidden the holiday rental of houses in multi-family buildings; and in a reform last year new rules were established to enforce this prohibition.

The rental platform was informed of these requirements on August 16 after verifying that it was still in breach of the law.

The fine of 300,000 includes sanctions for advertising 20 homes in Mallorca without the legal requirements.

Airbnb claim that they haven’t received any official notification of a fine; and say that last year the Airbnb community generated more than 500 million for the Balearic Islands economy.

The company adds that local families could lose 100 million because of the new tourist rental laws in the Balearics.

They added that that one in every eight local hosts said the extra income helped them avoid eviction or foreclosure.

A spokesperson for Airbnb told Sun Online Travel: “This is a fine against local families who share their homes and bring great benefits to Mallorca and the Balearic Islands.

“We share their disappointment and will appeal.

“We strongly believe that rules in the Balearic Islands should help spread tourism benefits to local families and their communities – not keep them in the hands of a wealthy few.

“Airbnb wants to continue to work together with the Govern Balear on progressive home sharing rules that allow regular people to share their spaces and make the Balearic Islands stronger.

35. How to make Snapchat group after new update an easy guide to Snapchat group chat20:58[−]

TRYING to make a group chat after the new Snapchat update? It’s easy when you know how.

If you’re still getting to grips with the controversial Snapchat app re-design, here’s one of the key tricks you need to know.

Snapchat group chat
The controversial new Snapchat update has significantly revamped the app’s design
Getty - Contributor

The first thing you need to know is that your ‘Chats’ and ‘Stories’ panels have now been merged into a single ‘Friends’ tab.

To get to this, you’ll need to do a right-swipe on your screen, pulling the panel out from the left.

Then, click on the top right corner, on the icon that looks like a small chat bubble.

Once you’re in there, tap on a friend you want to chat with.

Snapchat groups
It’s not too difficult to make group chats with the new Snapchat design

You’ll then be able to tap on other friends who you also want to speak with, and you can create a group chat using all of these people.

It’s worth noting that you can only add Snapchatters to a group if you’re both friends with each other.

You can send Snaps directly to a group, and everyone in the group will be able to see that you sent the Snap. They’ll also be able to see who opened it.

The maximum group chat size currently allowed on Snapchat is 32. You won’t be able to create bigger groups than this using the app, although you can create several different group chats, each with the maximum of 32 users.

Just be safe in the knowledge that you’re not alone if the new Snapchat update has left you feeling confused.

The app redesign has proved so controversial that more than a million people have signed a petition begging Snapchat to roll back the update.

The update made a number of sweeping changes to the interface that made it difficult for long-time Snapchat users to navigate the app.

Snapchat isn’t backing down on its new update however, and is hoping users simply get used to the new app design over time.

In a statement given to The Sun, a Snapchat spokesperson said: “Updates as big as this one can take a little getting used to, but we hope the community will enjoy it once they settle in.”

36. Who is Gabriella Papadakis and what was her wardrobe malfunction? Ice dancer whose dress ripped at Winter Olympics20:54[−]

A FRENCH ice dancer bared her breast to millions of Winter Olympics viewers worldwide after suffering a wardrobe malfunction during her routine.

But who exactly is the overly exposed Olympian Gabriella Papadakis and how did her boob end up popping out for all the world to see? Here’s the lowdown.

Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron were in the middle of their routine when disaster struck

Who is Gabriella Papadakis?

Gabriella Papadakis is a 22-year-old French ice dancer currently competing in the Winter Olympics.

She competes with her 23-year-old partner Guillaume Cizeron who she began dancing with at around the time they were both nine or 10.

She grew up in Clermont-Ferrand, France but moved to Montreal, Canada in 2014.

Together the pair have won, two World Championships, four European Championships, three Grand Prix medals, and three French National Championships.

They are amongst the favourites to take home a medal in PeyongChang.

What was her wardrobe malfunction?

Papadakis and Cizeron were competing in the short dance when her dress somehow got unclipped at the back.

She tried in vain to cover up and eventually managed to clip her top back together.

Social media users were quick to praise Papadakis for bravely carrying on, while others blasted broadcasters for showing a slow-mo replay.

She said: “It was pretty distracting.

“My worst nightmare at the Olympics. I told myself ‘you have to keep going’.

“That’s what we did, and we have to be proud of ourselves, delivering a great performance with that happening.”

The mishap happened when Papadakis leaned backwards early on and Cizeron inadvertently managed to unclip the back of her green costume.

Where did they finish?

The duo managed to shrug off the distraction and record a score of 81.93 – enough to move up to second behind Canada’s Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue.

Moir and Virtue’s 83.67 broke their own world record, frustrating the French pair who had to deal with the costume cock up.

“It’s just frustrating to miss a few points because of a costume issue. It is not what we get ready for when we train,” said Cizeron afterwards.

The pair will presumable be opting for more well fitting attire when they take the ice again tomorrow in the free dance section in the hope of taking home a medal.

39. Young mum Nikita Murtagh who pleaded guilty to having loaded gun at Dublin train station walks free from Special Criminal Court20:48[−]

A WOMAN who pleaded guilty to having a gun at Connolly train station in Dublin has walked free after being sentenced today by the Special Criminal Court.

The court heard Nikita Murtagh, 21, was acting out of a “misplaced sense of family loyalty” when she handed a shoebox containing a loaded gun to a man about to board the Dublin to Belfast train.

Nikita, 20, has a three-year-old child

The mum-of-one was sentenced to three years in jail, the sentence backdated to July 17 last year – when she first entered custody – with the balance suspended.

Murtagh, with an address at Mariners Port, Sheriff Street, Dublin, had pleaded guilty today to the unlawful possession of a CZ model 70 semi-automatic pistol at Connolly Station in Dublin on July 19 last year.

During her sentence hearing, Detective Inspector Noel Browne told prosecuting counsel Gareth Baker SC that, on the day in question – during a surveillance operation – gardai observed Murtagh enter the train station shortly before 3.15pm.

She was observed heading toward the waiting area for the Dublin to Belfast train, which was due to depart at 3.30pm, the court heard.

She was pushing a buggy with a three-year-old child inside when she met her co-accused, Ciaran Ryan, and handed him a paper bag, before leaving the station.

The court heard that Ryan boarded the train but was stopped by gardai and tried to kick the bag away.

When gardai searched the bag they found it contained a shoebox with a loaded gun.

Ciaran Ryan was jailed last month for three years for possession of the firearm

Last month, 24-year-old Ryan, from Summerhill, Dublin, was jailed for three years for possession of the firearm.

Murtagh was arrested at 6pm at a bus stop outside Dublin Airport.

She had a handbag containing a change of clothes and a passport. The next bus leaving at the stop was bound for Belfast.

Murtagh was then taken to Store Street garda station, where she told gardai that she did not know what was in the box.

The court heard Murtagh is from the north inner city of Dublin, was not a person known to gardai but has had relationships with people known to gardai and of interest to them on an ongoing basis.

Det Insp Browne said that her actions were “probably the result of misplaced sense of family loyalty” and that she had family members connected to violence of an extreme nature in recent years.

Nikita Murtagh leaving court earlier today

Under cross-examination, Det Insp Browne told Michael O’Higgins SC, defending, that Murtagh was a courier, chosen for her role because she was not a criminal but was “naive” and a “fresh face” who had not previously come to the attention of gardai.

The inspector said that one of the “unfortunate aspects” of investigating people – such as the accused – was that they are used by more devious people to effect actions of certain groups.

Det Insp Browne agreed with Mr O’Higgins that she was “not likely to re-offend”.

Mr Justice Tony Hunt, presiding, sitting with Judge Patricia Ryan and Judge Ann Ryan, said the court dealt with sentencing on the grounds of recklessness as opposed to intention.

The judge said the court was satisfied it was “clear to Ms Murtagh she was being asked to deliver something of an illicit nature, and she took the significant risk”.

He said: “There can be little doubt in relation to that.”

The judge also said the court could not ignore that she is the mother of a three-year-old child.

The court heard that “significant and weighty mitigating factors” were Murtagh’s guilty plea, which had some value for the prosecution and investigators, as well as her “misplaced sense of loyalty”.

Mr Justice Hunt said the court respected the inspector’s assessment that she is a person “capable of staying out of trouble in the future”.

The judge also said the court could not ignore that she is the mother of a three-year-old child.

He said that Murtagh was in court because of misplaced loyalty but that she has a young child that should be the “focus of her loyalty”.

He said that the court gave her the sentence out of consideration for her child.

Murtagh wept audibly as the sentence was read out.


40. Arsenal to wear rare red shorts for just second time in 39 years against Manchester City in Carabao Cup final20:46[−]

ARSENAL will wear red shorts for just the second time in nearly 40 years when they face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.

Having donned red shorts against West Brom on New Year’s Eve already this campaign, the Gunners will be hoping for better luck this time around.

Arsene Wenger‘s men conceded late on at the Hawthorns as Jay Rodriguez netted a penalty to salvage a point in the closing stages of the match.

And just like the situation against Alan Pardew’s men, Arsenal’s traditional white shorts are the problem.

West Brom – like City – play with white shorts, while the North London club cannot play in their light blue away kit as that will clash with the Citizens’ home strip.

Arsenal will instead take to the hallowed turf at Wembley in an all red strip from top to socks, with the exception of white sleeves.

The EFL confirmed on their website of the kit change, with Wenger hoping this will prove to be a lucky omen as he seeks to win the League Cup for the first time in his career.

Prior to this campaign, the last time the FA Cup holders wore red shorts was against QPR back on April 11, 1978, a fixture the Hoops won 2-1.


BETTER THAN ME Arsene Wenger reveals he had meeting with Pep Guardiola about signing for Arsenal


Arsenal fans have every right to be confused why they are the club having to change their kit, considering City wore blue shorts in last season’s FA Cup semi-final against the Gunners, as well as in a Premier League 2 fixture between the two side’s last August.

While in other news, Arsenal’s clash against Leicester scheduled to take place on March 17 has been postponed due to the Foxes FA Cup commitments.

Chloe Madeley has revealed that her boyfriend James Haskell has secretly written a novel and plans to publish it when he retires from rugby.

The fitness fanatic, 30, who has been the dating the English rugby union player, 32, for three-and-a half years, says James is obsessed with crime fiction and would love to focus on his writing later in his career.

Im really, really pedantic about how much he sleeps. I get really angry with him if I wake up after going to bed and hes still reading his crime novels, Im like, Put the book down and go to sleep.

Chloe, who is appearing on Ex On The Beach: Body SOS on MTV on Wednesday at 8pm, admits that she likes to keep Chris in shape during his training periods.

She said: Im really annoying. Its like the nanny state being with me Im really conscious of his diet, hes basically handed over his diet and nutrition to me which is amazing so I kind of feed him up, I make sure his calories and his macro-nutrient intake is all in line with the performance with the training and the game, we kind of have a set plan usually that we do the day before and the day of the game so thats fun and then in terms of training.

Chris often uploads videos of the couple to his YouTube channel and as a result they have been inundated with offers of reality shows.

She said: Lots of production companies have approached us. But I think that James is very focused on his rugby, and Im very focused on building my fitness line, so the timing just isnt right. Hopefully one day well do something together.

42. Why are Arsenal wearing red shorts in the Carabao Cup final, and when did they last wear them?20:44[−]

ARSENAL will wear red shorts for just the second time in 39 years in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final.

The Gunners have made the change to eliminate the chance of a kit clash with Manchester City.

PA:Press Association

Why will Arsenal be wearing red shorts?

Arsene Wenger’s side have had to change their traditional home strip to avoid a clash of colours with City’s sky blue and white kit.

Arsenal’s shorts would have been the same colour as their opponents, which could have led to confusion.

The Gunners’ light blue away kit would also clash with the strip worn by Pep Guardiola’s side.

When the two sides played each other in November, the North London side donned their black third strip.


SPOT ON Does the Carabao Cup final go to extra-time and penalties or just penalties?


When was the last time they wore red shorts?

The Gunners had to wear red shorts for a New Year’s Eve match against West Brom.

But this is said to be the first time that they had wore this since 1978.

Arsenal drew the game 1-1 with the Baggies, which swiftly ended all speculation that the new shorts could be a good luck charm.

When is the Carabao Cup final?

This match will take place on Sunday, February 25.

It will kick-off at 4:30pm.

44. West Brom only trained for THREE hours during whole of Spain warm-weather break which involved Taxi-gate20:38[−]

WEST BROM are said to have trained for just THREE hours during their ‘taxi-gate’ trip to Barcelona.

Alan Pardew’s players were due to spend three days at Espanyol’s training ground, Ciutat Esportiva Dani Jarque.

But the Guardian report that the players spent minimal time training during a warm-weather camp in which they allegedly stole a taxi.

Gareth Barry, Jonny Evans, Jake Livermore, and Boaz Myhill have today seen any case against them dropped by Spanish cops.

They are alleged to have nabbed the cab and while the driver was collecting a massive food order at a McDonald’s drivethrough at 5.30am on Thursday.

But despite the fallout putting his own job on the line, Pardew decided NOT to axe the quartet.

The four players allegedly drove the taxi two miles from the McDonald's to the five-star hotel

Pardew’s shamed stars issued a grovelling apology for their behaviour during the club’s training trip to Spain.

Ahead of confirmation of todays court decision, it had been thought the players could receive a community service order lasting 31 to 90 days or a fine under Spanish law.

The four West Brom players were identified by police in a report handed to the investigating judge following the bizarre Thursday morning incident.

McDonalds duty manager Saray Ortega Gracia called cops when the driver told her that his car had been taken as he ordered burgers for the players.

The 29-year-old said over the weekend: The driver placed a big order – a Big Mac meal each and four chicken burgers and the bill was 31 Euros (?27.95).

The driver got out to collect the order and one of the men got behind the wheel.

West Brom player's statement

The players’ statement read: “We would like to take this opportunity to apologise to our team-mates, the head coach, the club and especially the supporters for the events which have been the subject of widespread and negative publicity.

“We felt it important we identify ourselves as the players involved in an incident which occurred during the training camp in Spain this week out of respect for team-mates who otherwise could be implicated by association.

“We freely acknowledge and apologise for the break of curfew which we accept represented a breach of the standards of professionalism required of us as representatives of West Bromwich Albion FC.

They thought it was funny but I felt sorry for him. I didnt learn they were rich footballers until later. I hope the police deal with them.

Police later confirmed they passed the players details on to an investigating court after racing to their five-star boutique hotel The One to recover the taxi at around 8am following a call from a concerned receptionist.

45. Hotel offers families discount if they lock mobile phones in box on holiday20:31[−]

TOO much screen time can seriously affect a family’s quality time together.

So one hotel chain has come up with an interesting solution – they’re offering guests a discount if they can stay away from their devices while on holiday.

US chain Wyndham hotels conducted a study and found that 54 per cent of children believe their parents check their phones too often.

Meanwhile, 32 per cent of the children asked said that they feel unimportant when their parents are distracted by screens.

So later this month, the hotel group will launch an initiative designed to give families a better holiday experience – by offering them a discount if they promise to keep their phones locked up.

Selected Wyndham Grand hotels across America (Clearwater Beach, Orlando Bonnet Creek, Chicago Riverfront, Hotel Galvez, and The Mills House) will give guests five per cent off their bills if they chose to take part in the Reconnected scheme.

Guests will get a box to lock their phone in, which will not open until a timer goes off.

The hotel are also selling an “analogue package,” which includes a blanket fort for the children, an Instax camera and a late-night room service for families to share while reading stories in the fort.

Noelle Nicolai, who developed the idea told Travel + Leisure: We saw parents hopping on a quick conference call in the lobby, and some hotels have had to order extra pool chairs because guests are swimming less and swiping more, eschewing dips in the pool for iPad time on poolside loungers.

While many families agree that it’s a good idea to spend less time on their phones while on holiday; there are some practical reasons for keeping a mobile with them.

GPS and emergency contacts can be vital for parents and for many their smartphone is their camera – something they would never holiday without.

London mum Jen Pharo says she’d never lock up her phone on holiday – she explains:”I’d have to buy a camera. And if I took photos on another camera Id have to load them up to a PC to send them to people or get them printed.

“Plus it might break or get lost, while photos on my phone are automatically backed up”.

She was looking to really shake things up in the desert and said she was more than used to sharing a room with loads of guys.

Working in the “hardcore tech industry” has given her a few insights on holding her own and keeping the attention on her.

What has Georgie Clarke said about Survival Of The Fittest?

Georgie said she would be open to love in the show but acknowledges that if the girls want to stick together to beat the boys she would be all for that.

But she added: “If I get in and the other girls are having fun and flirting, then Ill definitely do that too”.

The consultant is most worried about a woman who isn’t interested in winning or being a team player – by the same coin she’s also not keen on boys who are “all talk and no walk”.

At the end of the day though, Georgie hopes that everyone will get on and that the girls will support each other.

52. Who is Tia Latham, how old is she and who replaced her on Survival of the Fittest?20:25[−]

THE Savannah is hotting up by the minute judging by the contestants who are competing on winter Love Island 2018.

Tia Latham signed up and was ready to face her fears on Survival Of The Fittest – but unfortunately became the first girl to leave. Here’s all you need to know about her.

Tia Latham is ready to be part of a team - unless that team contains snorers!
ITV Plc
Tia Latham was the first girl to leave Survival of the Fittest[/caption]

Who is Tia Latham?

Tia Latham is a 28-year-old model from Buckinghamshire.

She was looking forward to the adrenaline rush that would come from pushing herself, facing her fears and taking risks.

Tia thought her individual back-story would be unlike anyone else on the show. She said that when she was born ‘nature was confused’ – by which she meant she had female chromosomes but her body ‘didn’t know which direction to go in’ so she had to ‘go through a process to become the woman I am today.’

However, she also thought that her intelligence and competitiveness would help her stand out and admitted that she doesn’t ever like to lose.

The boys and the girls will be battling it out under the hot South African sun.

What has Tia Latham said about Survival Of The Fittest?

Tia thinks that the girls will win because women are natural at multi-tasking, whilst men can only focus on one thing at a time.

She was looking for mates over dates, but couldn’t completely rule out finding love.

If a lad were to catch her eye he’d likely be ‘tall, handsome and a bit exotic looking’ with plenty of intelligence and a good sense of humour.

But if he snored, or said one thing and then did another, she’d go off him immediately – as these are traits she can’t stand in people.

Tia was replaced by Mettisse Campbell.

What is Survival of The Fittest about?

Survival Of The Fittest sees a group of hot, young singles sent to the South African Savannah to take part in the ultimate battle of the sexes, involving mental and physical challenges.

But the strength of the ladies and gents is not the only thing being tested.

Throughout the series, the contestants will have the opportunity to romance the opposite sex – but only at the expense of their team’s chances in the competition.

Will they choose dates over mates, and find themselves in bed with the enemy? You can count on it…

As with Love Island, viewers will be able to vote off the contestants that don’t tickle their fancy.

They will also be responsible for choosing which of the sexes comes out on top.

The 21-year-old was forced into quitting the ITV2 show through injury, a day after entering the show’s lodge in the South African wild.
Due to the nature of the series, where the boys and girls battle tough physical challenges, as well as mental ones, the producers decided she was not fit to continue on the show.

Dani, 22, admitted she was gutted at having to pull out of the show after the first task went awry.

Here’s what you need to know about the Chelsea socialite – who has hit the big time after her jungle triumph.

Georgia Toffolo won I’m a Celebrity 2017
?ITV Plc

Who is Georgia Toffolo?

Toff was born on October 23, 1994, in London.

Raised between London and Devon, she attended Torquay Girls’ Grammar School.

She completed an LLB law degree at the University of Westminster and wants to work in commercial law.

She has worked at a family run solicitors in Devon and law firm Family Law in Partnership in London.

Georgia also did two years of voluntary work and helped out at an old people’s home and a charity shop.

She was at an awards ceremony in the House of Commons when the Westminster terror attack took place and she was locked inside with everyone else as events unfolded outside.

Why did Toff win I’m A Celebrity?

Toff won the show due to her brave ways and no-nonsense attitude.

The Made in Chelsea star proved her pluck after being hoisted up into the air in a perspex box filled with snakes and was told to endure the confined space for nine minutes, winning a star for each minute that passed.

She also had a sweet friendship with 77-year-old Stanley Johnson, dad of Boris Johnson.

Toff’s best pal, former MEP Stanley added: “I knew she was going to make it, I said right from the start, Toff’s the one.”

For weeks Toff was the bookies favourite to win the show, after winning the nations heart with her sunny personality and positive nature.

What’s the job that Toff’s been offered on This Morning?

The Made In Chelsea star was offered a job on This Morning as a result of her time in the jungle.

She revealed the exciting news on Instagram today as she took a break from skiing in Verbier, Switzerland.

The 23-year-old shared a picture of her enjoying a glass of wine and taking in the stunning mountain view from beside the piste.

She wrote: “FONDU AND ROS? FOR TOFFY! Filming something so fun for @thismorning Im so excited I could burst.”

The daytime TV show has a track record of nurturing reality TV talent, with Ferne McCann, Alison Hammond and Rylan Clark-Neal all becoming staples on the programme.

How did Toff initially become a celebrity?

Georgia, who goes by the name Toff, joined the Made in Chelsea cast in the seventh series of the show.

And she is the only series seven newcomer that is still on the show.

She is good friends with cast members Jess Woodley, who has now quit, and Mark-Francis Vandelli.

What does she do for a living?

Fans of the show saw her start a job at The Lady magazine during the eleventh series of the show.

In January 2015 she started work for a centre think tank called Parliament Street as head of events.

She said she wants to get more young people voting and said: “Winning the support of young people could mean the difference between success and failure so it’s time politicians took these audiences seriously.”

Who has Toff been romantically involved with?

She dated cast member Richard Dinan very briefly but after a dinner date that featured on the show, he told her he didn’t think they were compatible.

During the series that was set in the South of France, she slept with Francis Boulle but was left devastated when he started dating Olivia Bentley.

In April 2016, she was linked to Gary Lineker’s son George after they were spotted getting cosy at a London nightclub.

Earlier this year she was looking for love in series three of E4 show Celebs Go Dating.

The Sun’s Bizarre column exclusively revealed how Georgia had secretly reignited her relationship with student James Middleton.

But in the jungle, following weeks of conflicting rumours and reports about her relationship status, Toff confirmed the couple had split just before the series began.

Bizarre reported in early 2018 how Georgia was secretly dating Charles Goode – whom Chelsy was rumoured to be engaged to.

A close source told The Sun: “Charles is totally smitten with Toff.

“They have been seeing each other for a while and this was their first time away as a proper couple.

“They spent New Year together at a huge party at Paddys chalet and they couldnt keep their hands off each other.”

Was Toff bullied when she was younger?

The star has confessed that being bullied at school aged 12 taught her to avoid confrontation – so it gave her the strength to win Im A Celebrity.

She said: Im very passive and in the four years Ive been on Made In Chelsea I generally avoid arguing. I really dont like it.

“So when there was animosity in camp I could feel it. I would always remove myself from the drama by going for a work-out, a swim or hanging out with Stanley Johnson, who was mostly doing his own thing. So I didnt experience any upset.

Maybe by nature and because of my past I protect myself. The minute I feel any tension I take myself away. I really prefer to be positive.

A group of girls didnt like me and picked on me on a daily basis. They were ever so bitchy. But I moved on, with the support of my family. Even talking about it now makes me well up with tears.

But its important to remember, most people have been bullied, and it makes you a stronger person in the long run.

58. Apple Glass revealed? Heres what Apples secret smart glasses might look like20:17[−]

APPLE is almost certainly working on a pair of augmented-reality “smart glasses”, but what would they look like?

One digital designer has created amazing hyper-realistic concept images that show what Apple’s AR headset might look like.

The designs show an AR headset, which would use a micro-computer to overlay images onto the lens, and were created by Dutch designer Martin Hajek for iDropNews.

This would allow you to see additional information beamed onto your eyes, on top of the real world.

It’s called “augmented reality”, and it’s different to “virtual reality”, which completely simulates a virtual world around you.

On Martin’s imaginary AR glasses, users could see information like phone signal, battery life, and the time.

Most recently, it was revealed that Apple had applied for a patent for a new lightweight smart glasses design.

Speaking to The Sun, top tech expert Daniel Ives revealed he expected the iPhone maker to launch what he called “Apple Glass” smart glasses in 2019.

“While this has been a late entrant from an AR/VR perspective, we believe Apple Glass will be the next step in the wearable category for Apple,” the GBH Insights analyst told us.

“If it has the Apple logo on it and [Apple] puts its marketing power behind this, Apple Glass could help carry the torch from Apple Watch as another wearable area for the company over the coming years.”

Sadly, Apple hasn’t actually confirmed plans to launch a pair of smart glasses any time soon.

However, key Apple rivals have developed their own AR and VR headsets, including Samsung, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, LG, and HTC.

59. Who is Warren Phillips? Survival of the Fittest 2018 cast member and construction worker from Gloucester20:15[−]

DESERTS can be pretty hot places – and they’re about to get much hotter.

Warren Phillips has joined the boys to battle it out against the girls and reckons he’ll fool them all with his charm. Here’s all you need to know.

Who is Warren Phillips?

Warren Phillips is a 29-year-old driller from Gloucestershire.

He says that the size of his body and his tattoos will really set him apart from the other guys on the show.

Warren takes real pride in his appearance and says, ‘my friends would say Im a perfectionist when it comes to things like my hair, trainers and dress sense.’

Because of that, he’s worried the way he looks on the show won’t reflect the way he looks in his Insta selfies!

Back when he was 20, he entered a local modelling contest and won The Face of Gloucester.

He’s got some famous Instagram followers including Miss Egypt plus he claims ‘Vicky Pattison followed me once but I didnt follow her back because I only follow people I know’.

Warren says that his friends would describe him as a perfectionist.

What has Warren Phillips said about The Survival Of The Fittest?

Self obsessed guys and diva behaviour from girls would really put Warren off and he’s hoping to steer clear of any of that whilst in South Africa.

He wants everyone to be on the same wavelength and is hoping that all the boys can keep their eyes firmly on the cash prize.

He’s paranoid that people will find out what his bad habits are, especially ones that he perhaps hasn’t even recognised in himself yet.

This experience will be his most exotic to date, seeing as – despite a trip to New York – he’s never ventured outside of Europe.

60. Kell Brook reveals his demons after losing last two fights suffering horror eye injuries in the process20:14[−]

And now, as he prepares to make his boxing comeback against Sergey Rabchenko on March 3, Brook has talked candidly about how he came close to chucking in the towel – permanently.

In an interview with The Guardian, Brook said: “I was really that low. I didnt want to go on. People dont know that. I hit rock bottom around Christmas.

“I remember sitting on my own, thinking: No one loves me. What have I done to myself? What have I done to the people that do love me?

“I was at home and my missus and kids were out. I thought, Ive let people down who really love me. It was very bad.

“I was thinking of retiring. Things werent great at home. I was a lost soul the lowest Ive ever been.”

Things started unravelling for Brook back in September 2016, when he suffered a broken right eye socket as he was stopped in the fifth round at middleweight against the beast Gennady Golovkin.


GR-OUCH The actual moment George Groves’ shoulder popped out


His corner pulled him out in the fifth round, and he later learned that if he had continued to receive punishment, he could have gone blind.

Eight months later, and this time it was an injury to the left eye socket that left Brook unable to see properly against Spence.

He was pulled out in the 11th round to lose his welterweight world title to one of the hottest prospects in world boxing.

The 31-year-old was then devastated to hear criticism from the likes of Tony Bellew and Chris Eubank Jr that he “quit” on his big night.

And this evidently played a part in his downward spiral.

He added: “It cuts so deep. Ive boxed all my life, and theres no quit in me, but I couldnt see. I was seriously injured. And when youve got children?

“When the surgeon said one more big shot from Golovkin and youd be blind? You still dont want to stop but Spence knew I was a wounded animal.”

Brook is now facing a make-or-break scrap against tough Belarusian Rabchenko, at his home of the Sheffield Arena.

He has a fight record of 29 wins, 22 by KO, with two defeats.

Who is Callum Pardoe?

Callum Pardoe is a 21-year-old student and lifeguard from South Wales.

He says his unique selling point is that he’s ‘a bit different’ from all of the other lads because he’s not ‘big and muscly or tattooed’.

Callum describes himself as very competitive and says that he applied for the show because he loves a good challenge.

When he was a little boy the local newspaper described him as ‘the next David Beckham’.

What has Callum Pardoe said about Survival Of The Fittest?

Callum has got his fingers crossed for swimming challenges because, as a trained lifeguard, he reckons he’ll totally nail them.

He hasn’t, however, got his fingers crossed for challenges that might involve bugs and says he’ll be a total screamer if he comes face to face with any creepy crawlies.

He’s super social and can’t wait for the opportunity to meet a load of new people.

But mainly he’s looking for a brunette with a ‘good set of teeth’.

What is Survival of The Fittest about?

Survival Of The Fittest sees a group of hot young singles sent to the South African Savannah to take part in the ultimate battle of the sexes, involving mental and physical challenges.

But the strength of the ladies and gents is not the only thing being tested.

Throughout the series, the contestants have the opportunity to romance the opposite sex – but only at the expense of their team’s chances in the competition.

Will they choose dates over mates, and find themselves in bed with the enemy? You can count on it…

As with Love Island, viewers are able to vote off the contestants that don’t tickle their fancy.

They are also responsible for choosing which of the sexes comes out on top.

62. How do you get Snapchat back to normal after the update, whats changed and whats the petition to roll it back?20:10[−]

THE recent Snapchat update changed the design of the app and has proved seriously divisive.

So how do you get the old interface back and is there a petition? Here’s the lowdown.

How do I get the old Snapchat back after the update?

Users who hate the new design are desperately seeking workarounds to avoid the update.
One of the simplest ways is to simply turn off app auto-updates on your smartphone, but this only works if the update hasn’t already been installed.

It’s also possible to download older versions of the app on Android, and some users are using VPNs (or virtual proxy networks) to trick the app into showing an older design.

But Snapchat’s Twitter support account is warning that this shouldn’t be done.

For iOS users, you can try deleting the app on your iPhone and then connecting it to your computer.

The open iTunes and select your device and, without syncing your phone, click the Applications tab.

Find Snapchat on the list and then select the option “install” – then sync your device.

The old version you have on iTubes should copy back to your phone.

What’s the petition to roll Snapchat back?

A Change.org petition set up by Australian Snapchat fan Nic Rumsey aims to roll back the update, and was signed by over 960,000 at the time of writing.

Nic said: “With the release of the new Snapchat update, many users have found that it has not made the app easier to use, but has in fact made many features more difficult.

“There is a general level of annoyance among users, and many have decided to use a VPN app to go back to the old Snapchat, as that’s how annoying this new update has become.

“Many ‘new features’ are useless or defeat the original purposes Snapchat has had for the past years.”

“This petition aims to help convince Snap Inc. to change the app back to the basics, before this new 2018 update.”

Who is James Middleton and when did he and Toff split?

James Middleton is a 23-year-old student.

In September, The Sun revealed Toff had rekindled a relationship with an ex-boyfriend, James.

She revealed she’d had a relationship with the student in the past, saying: “I am so pleased to be back with my ex James.

“I always really liked him but it was hard on us because my job means that I have to go out all the time and a lot of men don’t like that.

“I often wonder if my relationships don’t work out because I am the more Alpha one and the focus is on me and men don’t like that.”

In another Sun exclusive, it was revealed the pair had split before she entered the jungle, with sources saying she “wanted to be single” for the experience.

Although Georgia claimed to be single on the show, her relationship status remained unclear after the couple were seen holding hands just a week before she jetted out.

Speaking to The Sun, those close to the couple explained: “She split from James after discovering that he ‘cheated’ on her with PR girl Annabel Field, who bears a striking resemblance to her.

“James really messed her around when they were together so she went ahead and did Celebs Go Dating as a single woman.

“But it wasnt long before they got back together again and theyre still in a relationship now even with Georgia being in the jungle.”

However, opening up to fellow campmate Vanessa White around the jungle campfire, Toff confirmed the split, saying she “wanted to use this time to get my confidence back up.”

James has still been showing his support to her on social media as she takes on her grueling bushtucker trials.

64. Bedbugs increase your risk of allergic reactions and deadly asthma attacks even after they are gone20:09[−]

BEDBUGS are a nasty pest that no one wants in their house.

But even when they are gone they leave traces behind that can cause allergic reactions and even asthma attacks, new research suggest.

Not only do the creepy crawlies bite you while you’re sleeping, they also poop in your bed.

It’s that poop that causes problems long after pest control has been.

The poo is loaded with histamine, a chemical found naturally in your body during allergic reactions.

It is histamine that causes your runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing and trouble breathing.

The chemical can also cause nasty rashes to appear on your skin and is particularly dangerous for those with underlying lung conditions like asthma because it causes an inflammatory response in your airways.

This can trigger potentially deadly asthma attacks if people are exposed to the chemical.

According to a new study from North Carolina State University histamine levels in bedbug infested homes were at least 20 times higher than in homes that were bug free.

And the levels continue to pose a problem for months after the bedbugs have been booted out.

In homes that were treated for the pests ,which involves circulating air as hot as 50C through the home, levels remained high.

“The intimate association of bed bugs with humans and the spatial distribution and persistence of histamine in homes suggest that histamine may represent an emergent indoor environmental contaminant whose impact on human health should be investigated,” the authors wrote.

“Bed bugs have become a major social, economic, and health problem since their global resurgence in the early 2000s.


BEAT THE BLOOD SUCKERS How to get rid of bed bugs, what causes an infestation and how to treat bites


“Infestations can reach exceedingly high levels, especially among the elderly and in disadvantaged communities, where interventions may be unaffordable.

“While bed bug bites have been recognised as a dermatological concern that can be exacerbated and lead to secondary infections, bed bugs have not been implicated as disease vectors or allergen producers.

“The results of this study demonstrate that the presence of bed bugs strongly correlates with histamine levels in homes, and thus may adversely affect the health of residents through exposure to exogenous histamine.”

Experts tested 30 apartments in North Carolina as part of the study, some of which were currently infested, some had never been affected and some were treated for bedbugs recently.

The study was published in the journal PLOS One.

65. Carbs after 10 wont make you fat: Meet the Instagram dietitian whos busting food myths but is she right?20:02[−]

MEET the dietitian and social media star who’s on a mission to bust common food myths.

Leanne Ward, who goes by The Fitness Dietitian on Instagram, insists that eating carbs after 10pm won’t make you fat – but is she right?

Instagram Photo

Instagram Photo

The 28-year-old told Mail Online: “Healthy doesn’t mean calorie counting, excessively exercising or weighing yourself daily.

“Healthy looks different on everyone, so my goal is to teach people – especially women – to love their bodies, to nourish them and to move them regularly.”

Leanne regularly posts side-by-side shots of Instagram vs reality – to remind people not to beat themselves up about their diets.

In one post, she posted a pic of a 500 calorie bowl of pasta, which she’s eating at 5pm. In another, taken at 10pm, she jokingly wrote: “Still 500 calories”.

Instagram Photo

Leanne said: “SERIOUSLY! So many of my clients restrict carbs at night as they think they will make them gain weight!

“They won’t… As long as the calories you’re consuming at night are within your body’s required amounts, you will not gain weight.

“My top tip is to space your carbohydrate intake around your training, your body responds best & uptakes carbs easiest straight after an exercise session.

“I eat 150g of rice at dinner most nights after my workout… I also have carbs the morning after training & just before my training sessions.

“I haven’t gained any weight as my body needs these carbs to recover & fuel my body.”

Instagram Photo

Leanne's day on a plate

Leanne told Mail Online she aims to eat every three to four hours, because she’s so active. Here’s what’s on her plate:

  • BREAKFAST: Eggs on toast with scrambled veg
  • Homemade muesli with Greek yoghurt
  • Overnight oats with seeds and a sprinkle of protein powder
  • SNACK: A piece of fruit
  • 1/4 cup of nuts and needs – and a soy cappucino
  • Vitawheats, cheese and carrot sticks
  • Homemade protein balls
  • LUNCH: Salad with grilled tofu, cheese and roasted sweet potato
  • A high fibre wrap with tuna, salad and cheese
  • Stir fry with rice noodles, veggies and lean protein
  • SNACK: Small tub of natural Greek yoghurt with 1 tablespoon chia seeds and 2 tablespoons homemade Granola
  • A piece of fruit and high fibre homemade muesli bar
  • DINNER: Omelette with two eggs, veggies and 1-2 slices of toast
  • Grilled salmon with brown rice and steamed veggies
  • Homemade pizza or pitta bread with veg and lean protein
  • SUPPER: A piece of fruit or a few squares of good quality chocolate.

So what is the science on eating carbs late at night?

Nate Miyaki, author of the Intermittent Feast, agreed with Leanne – and told Men’s Fitness that our fear of carbs stems from a misunderstanding.

He said: Eating too many calories and carbohydrates in general makes you fat. It’s the total food intake not the distribution that is the problem.

So eating carbs at night shouldn’t do you any harm, unless it’s pushing you over your recommended calorie and carb allowance.

While there are some benefits to eating carbs late at night. Some studies have shown that evening carbs can help you sleep better.

Are you a stress eater? We recently revealed a nutritionist’s top tips to beating the cravings.

66. Survival Of The Fittest spoilers: Lottie and Georgia go head to head to fight for their place in The Lodge in the first all-girl challenge20:02[−]

LOTTIE and Georgia will be forced to battle it out for their place in the Survival of the Fittest lodge tonight.

The boys chose the girls after suspecting that they aren’t being completely honest about their supposed feelings for Warren and David.

Upset that her male counterparts have called her loyalty into question, Georgia instantly gets upset about the situation.

And James’ words certainly won’t put a smile on her face as he tells her: If you were genuine, none of this would happen. If you are yourself none of this happens.

Getting even more candid in the Tree House, James continues: It got to a point with Georgia where I just wanted to be straight with her because I think too many people arent being straight with her.

“Its not about being mean, its about telling her that she needs to be honest.

Also weighing in on the situation, Warren says: Its a small knit group. If you say something to someone its going to get back I was genuine from day one, I didnt want to come out of my shell, I didnt talk to any of the girls for ages properly because I kept them all at arms length because this is what happens.

But it seems it isn’t only the boys who feel that way, as newcomer Sam also accuses of Lottie of leading Warren on.

Speaking in the Tree House confessional, she explains: Lottie could have been a bit more open and honest with Warren and weve all realised, especially in this Lodge, that you need to be open and you need to be honest with each other.

Unsurprisingly the mood quickly turns sour in the lodge as George accuses Mettisse of breaking “girl code” and telling the Boys about her true feelings for David.

Later confronting Mettisse, she slams: “What has upset me the most is that I thought that we actually had a good relationship between me and you and now I just thinkyou doing what youve done has broken my trust and broken the Girl Code.

“Youre saying that honesty is the best way but what youve done, you havent been honest to me, youve gone behind my back now.

Standing by her decision to tell the Tristan how Georgia was really feeling, Mettisse retorts: I told you that I thought what you were doing with David wasnt right

But Georgia doesn’t take her actions lightly, seething: “I feel so angry and upset and now I cant be myself and that Im going to have to be a mouse the whole time.

Georgia takes her nomination particularly hard
ITV

“If I win this challenge, I feel like I dont even really want to come back to The Lodge because the lads are ignoring me as if I dont exist, the Girls think Im a snake and betraying you”

Later Jenny tells Georgia that she has what it takes to defeat Lottie in the challenge, but Georgia’s knocked confidence shows as she says she isn’t so sure.

She tells her: I hope I do. I might be more hungry but when its life or death literally, her power could be more.

The challenge in question will see the girls take place on beams located high above a waterhole. At each end of the plank there is a timer, which the contestants must turn continuously to ensure they don’t run out of sand.

The girl who manages to keep the timers going for the longest at the end of the three rounds will keep their place in the team, while the lose will be ejected immediately.

When are The Oscars 2018 and what do they recognise?

Now the nominations are out, a secondary voting period for the eventual winner will run from February 20 – 27.

The Oscars award show will take place on Sunday, March 4, 2018.

They will be held at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood and Highland Centre in Hollywood, California.

The Academy Awards is an annual ceremony hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Celebrating its 90th year, the show (dubbed The Oscars after the man-shaped statuette received on winning) is considered by most in the entertainment industry as the highest honour to receive in recognition for their work on and off screen.

The Academy is a 6,000-strong group made up of film industry professionals such as actors, directors and producers – making the awards stand-out against shows such as the Golden Globes as it is a vote by the nominees’ peers.

Jimmy Kimmel has been announced as this year’s master of ceremonies.

This will be the second year running that he has performed hosting duties for The Academy.

Jimmy also took the helm for the 2016 and 2012 Emmy Awards, the 2007 ESPYS, and presenting the American Music Awards five times.

Previous presenters have included Ellen DeGeneres, Neil Patrick Harris, Seth MacFarlane and Chris Rock.

70. Does the Carabao Cup final go to extra-time and penalties or just penalties?19:59[−]

ARSENAL and Manchester City are expected to arrive with all guns blazing for Sunday’s Carabao Cup final.

But, what happens if the final whistle blows and the score is level?

Will the final go to extra-time and penalties or just penalties?

If the match is drawn after 90 minutes, the tie will go to extra-time then penalties.

Matches in this competition are single-legged up to the semi-finals.

Between 1961 and 1966, the Carabao Cup finals were two-legged. But this has since been changed.

Will the Carabao Cup use ABBA penalties this season?

Yes they will.

This season, there will also be the addition of ABBA penalties for drawn ties if it goes past extra-time.

City need to win the final to keep their quadruple dream alive
Getty - Contributor

What is the ABBA penalty shootout?

Uefa and Fifa are examining a new ABBA system, as an alternative to the current ABAB.

That basically means the order of penalties taken in a shootout will be similar to the serve in a tennis tie-break.

So, rather than one team taking first and the other following, the idea is that one team takes a penalty, followed by the opposition taking two penalties.

Each team then alternates in taking two penalties until a result is achieved.

The idea behind the change is to take away the unfair disadvantage the team that takes the second penalty supposedly has when they have to kick to stay in the game.

When is the Carabao cup final?

Thism atch will take place on Sunday, February 25.

It will kick-off at 4:30pm.

Wembley Stadium will host the showdown.

71. Just one can of Coke a day reduces your chance of becoming pregnant by 20 per cent19:59[−]

DRINKING just one sugar-laden drink a day reduces your chance of becoming pregnant by 20 per cent, new research suggests.

Cans of pop have already been linked to obesity, type 2 diabetes, early menstruation and poor semen quality but now new evidence suggests it also affects both men and women’s probability of conception.

Experts from Boston University of Public Health surveyed 3,828 women aged 21 to 45 living in America and Canada to determine the link between sugar-sweetened drinks and infertility.

They also surveyed 1, 045 of their male partners.

Participants were found through the Pregnancy Online Study, an ongoing internet-based study of US couples.

They were asked to answer questions about their lifestyles, medical history and diet, including their consumption of sweetened drinks.

Both the male and female consumption of sugary drinks was associated with an average 20 per cent reduced fecundability – the average monthly probability of becoming pregnant.

Women who drank more than one fizzy drink a day were 25 per cent less likely to become pregnant and men were 33 per cent less likely to be able to get their partner pregnant.

Those who regularly drank energy drinks were even less likely to become pregnant.

The researchers found little association between fruit juice and diet soft drinks.

Lead author Elizabeth Hatch, a professor of epidemiology at the university, said: “We found positive associations between intake of sugar-sweetened beverages and lower fertility, which were consistent after controlling for many other factors, including obesity, caffeine intake, alcohol, smoking, and overall diet quality.

“Couples planning a pregnancy might consider limiting their consumption of these beverages, especially because they are also related to other adverse health effects.”

Previous studies have found that diet soft drinks may reduce a woman’s chance of becoming pregnant while undergoing IVF.

It found those who drank low-calorie pop or put sweeteners in their hot drinks were more likely to produce poorer quality eggs and embryos.

Despite going on to hold a Guinness World record for being the longest-serving actor in an Australian serial, Ray revealed he almost didn’t sign on to the show as an anticipated two-year commitment felt like a ‘lifetime’.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, he said: “no, I’m not signing for two years, that’s a lifetime.” I refused. That was 30 years ago. And I’m still here.’

Does Alf die in a gas leak?

Ray has recently hinted his time may soon be coming to an end on the soap: “I’ve had a phenomenal 30 years playing Alf and I’d certainly like to continue, but the way things are looking at the moment, I’m not too hopeful.”

The storyline culminates in the show’s 30th anniversary when ex-hitman Robbo is involved in a car chase that ultimately ends when a vehicle smashes into a construction site.

The crash causes a gas leak which eventually results in a mains pipe exploding beneath Summer Bay.

A sinkhole emerges in a classroom, trapping Alf in mortal peril.

When can I watch Home and Away?

Beginning the week Monday 36 March, the soap will broadcast a special storyline airing the same week in the UK and Australia.

The show continues weekdays on Channel 5 at 1.15pm and 6pm.

Alternatively, you can catch up on any episodes you miss on MY5.

In the steamy scene, Sarah wrapped her legs around the handsome actor and the pair passionately kissed.

Whilst the actress found fame on the raunchy Sex and the City, she spoke openly about her discomfort for racy sex scenes.

She refused to go nude on the show, despite co-stars Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis doing so.

“I just never dug it. I think its great when women feel comfortable doing it, and thats their choice,” she said all in an interview with People.

The series is back for a second series

Sarah Jessica plays the role of a mother going through a divorce on the series Divorce – which she produces and stars in.

She takes on the role of Frances Dufresne, who is adapting to single life following her split from husband Robert, played by Thomas Haden Church.

Sarah’s raunchy scenes come after she was blasted by former Sex and the City co-star Kim Cattrall.

Earlier this month, Kim announced that her brother Chris had suddenly died, provoking an outpouring of support and condolences from fans and her former Sex and the City co-stars, including Sarah Jessica, 52, who also spoke about the tragedy in TV interviews.

But days later, Kim unleashed her fury at her former co-star, who she famously does not get along with.

She branded her a hypocrite and cruel.

74. Robert Lewandowski insists he is happy at Bayern Munich and is not thinking about Real Madrid transfer19:56[−]

ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI is ignoring all talk of a move to Real Madrid and is focusing all of his energy on Bayern Munich.

The Polish striker, 29, has been close to a transfer to the Bernabeu in the past and recent reports suggest he has told the Bundesliga giants to let him join Los Blancos.

However, he insists he is only focused on delivering success to his current employers.

He told Kicker: “If I were to think about the Real speculation as a Bayern player, it wouldn’t be good for me because it would mean I wasn’t focused on my job here.

“I’m a Bayern player and want to give everything for them. That comes first for me.”

Lewandowski has been in stunning form this term, netting 32 goals in 36 games as the Barvarians look set to win a sixth Bundesliga title in a row.

Second-place Borussia Dortmund sit a whopping 19 points off.

But Lewandowski is desperate to win the Champions League for the first time in his career.

Bayern welcome Besiktas to the Allianz Arena for the first leg of their last-16 clash on Wednesday.

Lewandowski lost in the 2013 final for Dortmund against the Bavarians and has been a beaten semi-finalist on two occasions since making the move.

What is Marcella and who does Anna Friel play?

Marcella (pronounced March-ella) is a London-set crime drama series written by Swedish novelist Hans Rosenfeldt, who also penned The Bridge.

Anna Friel plays Detective Sergeant Marcella Backland, a troubled character who in the first series became a suspect and a witness in the murder case she was trying to solve.

That case involved a serial killer who put plastic bags over the heads of everyone he or she murdered.

The first series also dealt with the breakdown of Marcella’s marriage, and how this affected her son Edward.

One of the shocking opening scenes showed Anna sitting in a bath filled with blood, though this was never resolved, leaving viewers confused and annoyed.

Downton Abbey’s Laura Carmichael and Corrie’s Ian Puleston-Davies had major roles in the first series.

Marcella is back for season 2

When is Marcella back for series two and what can we expect?

Series two is starts on February 2018 19 and will throw viewers straight back into the thrilling drama.

Marcella is alerted to the discovery of a schoolboy’s dead body enclosed in a wall, surrounded by toys and a school blazer.

It soon transpires that this is Leo Priestley, a boy who was abducted a fear years ago and was friends with Marcella’s own son.

Nigel Planer and Keith Allen have joined the cast as a pop star and his manager respectively.

Marcella begins on ITV at 9pm on February 19.

76. Winter Olympics 2018: Red Stripe rescue Jamaica bobsleigh team by paying ?40,000 for new sled after coach walked away with theirs19:55[−]

A BEER company has come to the rescue of the women’s Jamaican bobsleight team ahead of their maiden Winter Olympics appearance.

The Caribbean nation’s hopes of success were left in tatters last week when their coach resigned, and claimed their only sled.

But Red Stripe have rode to the rescue as Jamaica prepares to field its first-ever female team in the sport.

Sandra Kiriasis, who won a gold medal in 2006 representing German, quit the Jamaican team when she was reassigned the role of track performance analyst from the team’s driving coach.

She claimed she was financially responsible for the bobsleigh, nicknamed “Colt Bolt” after the film Cool Runnings and Usain Bolt, after leasing it herself.

Jamaica’s Bobsleigh Federation disputed Kirasis’s claims and refused to pay for it themselves, putting the women’s participation in turmoil.

But up stepped Red Stripe to save the day through their Twitter account.

They tweeted: “No bobsled, no problem. If you need a new ride @Jambobsled, put it on @RedStripe’s tab. DM us and we’ll be in touch.”


COLD FRONT Ice dancer left red-faced after revealing a bit too much


The new sled will cost around ?40,000 and Red Stripe’s marketing manager Andrew Anguin told adweek: “When Red Stripe caught wind of the news, we immediately huddled as a team and made the decision to show our support.

“This is not a joke. The games are an honour to compete in, and as the No 1 beer in Jamaica, we want to help those athletes realise their dreams.

“The athletes clearly have no quit, so we would love to do our part and put the cost of a new bobsled on our ‘bar tab.’

“As a beer born and brewed on the same island as these athletes, we want to ensure they have what they need to proudly compete.”

77. Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane are there but who is the lower league wonderkid storming the goalscoring charts this year?19:53[−]

THE world of football became obsessed with calendar year stats at the end of 2017 when Harry Kane was chasing down Alan Shearers long-stand record for goals.

By scoring a hat-trick against Southampton in Tottenhams final game of 2017, Kane reached 39 goals, beating Shearers tally of 36 from 1995.

So with 2018 just shy of two months old, we asked our friends at Football Whispers to look at the top scorers in Englands top four divisions so far.

Five goals: Roberto Firmino, Jamie Vardy, Tom Eaves

The 2017/18 campaign has been Firminos best at Liverpool.

With 21 strikes in all competitions, five of which have come since January, the former Hoffenheim man has proven he is worthy of the No 9 shirt he was given at the start of the season.

At Leicester, Vardy is also enjoying a fine start to the new year.

The 31-year-old England international has already matched last seasons return of 13 Premier League goals and has helped himself to five since the turn of the year and four in as many games.

The name you might not be familiar with is that of Gillinghams Eaves.

Six goals: Billy Kee, Mohamed Eisa

In League Two there are a pair of forwards who you might not have expected to find on this list but have more than earned their places among illustrious company.

Accrington Stanley forward Kee, 27, is the League Two top scorer with 19 league goals already the best return of the nine-cap Northern Ireland internationals career.

Six of those, including the equaliser in Saturdays 1-1 draw at Barnet, have come in 2018 for the promotion chasers.

At the other end of the table Cheltenham have unearthed a gem in Eisa.

The Sudan-born forward, 23, joined the Robins last summer after a prolific spell at Greenwich Borough and has 17 goals in all competitions.

The highlight of his season came earlier this month a hat-trick in a 5-1 thrashing of Port Vale.

Seven goals: Mo Salah, Eden Hazard, Ryan Sessegnon

Liverpool forward Salah has been virtually unrecognisable from the player who struggled to make an impression at Chelsea, scoring 30 times in all competitions already.

Seven of those strikes, including a brace in the 2-2 draw with Tottenham, have come in the new year.

One-time Real Madrid transfer target Hazard has been unplayable in recent weeks and has 15 goals for Chelsea in all competitions.

He has stepped up impressively in Alvaro Moratas absence, netting six since the turn of the year.

Keeping illustrious company is Fulhams exciting young left-sider Sessegnon.

With 12 Championship goals the 17-year-old is the Whites top scorer and, according to reports, a Manchester United transfer target.

Eden Hazard has not just shone this season for his creativity, he has also helped make up for a poor debut season in the Prem for Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata

How much longer he will remain at Craven Cottage could hinge on whether Slavisa Jokanovics side win promotion this term.

10 goals: Harry Kane

The records keep tumbling for Tottenham forward Kane. After beating Shearers haul for a single year the England international passed 100 Premier League goals for the North Londoners by scoring in the 2-2 draw at Liverpool.

Now he has his eyes on winning the Premier League Golden Boot for a third successive season. With 23 league goals in the bag already, the 24-year-old is just six short of last seasons tally.

Shearer is the only man to win the award three times in a row while at Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United between 1994 and 1997. Kane has his eyes firmly fixed on changing that.

14 goals: Sergio Aguero

One of the few men who could stand between Kane and a record-equalling third successive top-scorer award is Manchester City hot-shot Aguero.

The prolific Argentine has already become the Citizens all-time leading scorer this term, surpassing Eric Brooks 177 goals. Now he is closing in on 200 in all competitions.

Despite rumours City coach Pep Guardiola is not a fan of his, the 29-year-old has been as regular as clockwork and has 14 goals in 2018 alone including a hat-trick against Newcastle and a four-goal haul in the 5-1 thrashing of Leicester.

78. Remains of worlds richest pirate Captain Black Sam Bellamy who plundered ?100m in loot may have been found in Cape Cod shipwreck19:53[−]

EXPERTS believe they may have found the gruesome remains of the richest pirate ever to plunder the seven seas.

Scientists are now carefully studying bones recovered from a Cape Cod shipwreck to see if they actually belong to infamous Captain Samuel “Black Sam” Bellamy.

Samuel ‘Black Sam’ Bellamy went down on board the Whydah Gally in 1771
The bones were found encased in sand and stone pulled from the wreck

The Whydah Pirate Museum in Yarmouth, Massachusetts, will now display the bones for the first time alongside what they believe is one of Bellamy’s pistols.

They were found encased in sand and stone pulled from the wreck of the ship Bellamy went down in, the Whydah Gally

The museum has now enlisted forensic scientists to compare DNA from the bones to a sample given by one of Bellamy’s living descendants.

The ship went down in stormy seas in 1717, killing most of its crew and leaving its treasure scattered across the ocean floor. Bellamy was just 28.

Bellamy (red coat) and his crew captured more than 50 ships before his death

Bellamy was a master sailor that pirated for just a little more than a year in and around the West Indies.

He is famous for being one of the original members of the Flying Gang which launched the careers of some of the most infamous pirates of all time including Edward “Blackbeard” Teach and Charles Vane.

Bellamy is long regarded as the most successful pirate in recorded history bagging more than ?100 million in plundered loot from more than 50 ships.

He was said to be a tall, strong and well mannered man who liked flashy clothes like many of his counterparts.

An amazingly preserved ship’s bell also salvaged from the sunken ship

He usually carried four duelling pistols and captained two ships, one heavily armed and another smaller one that he could quickly manoeuvre to block rival ships.

When the Whydah went down it reportedly held more than four and a half tonnes of gold and silver.

But after the wreck was discovered in 1984, trinkets and human remains encased in a hardened mass of sand and stone were recovered.

The state of the art ship weighing 300 tonnes was loaded with 18 fearsome cannons.

X marks the spot where the ship was last seen sailing

Bellamy loved the freedom that came with piracy and had nothing but disdain for those sailors who chose life aboard a merchantman or naval vessel.

His famous quote to a captured captain named Beer reveals his philosophy: Damn my blood, I am sorry they won’t let you have your sloop again, for I scorn to do anyone a mischief, when it is not to my advantage; damn the sloop, we must sink her, and she might be of use to you.

Who was Samuel 'Black Sam' Bellamy and was he really the richest ever pirate?

Bellamy called himself the Robin Hood of the Sea and his men called themselves Robin Hoods men.

There is no record of him ever killing a captive, and he often returned captured ships and cargo if they didnt suit his purpose.

Little is known of early life, though he is believed to have been born in the west of England.

His parents were said to be tenant farmers, hovering on the edge of starvation.

Bellamy left home at a young age for a port – London, Bristol or Plymouth.

He became a ships boy at 13 and by the end of the Spanish war in 1712 he was a skilled sailor.

Bellamy is famous for being one of the original members of the Flying Gang.

He liked flashy clothes – especially black coats – and usually carried four duelling pistols while marauding at sea.

His nickname Black Sam came from the fact he wore his black locks tied back in a ponytail rather than a powdered white wig.

He is believed to have bagged an amazing ?100m fortune during his brief pirating career.

“Tho’, damn ye, you are a sneaking puppy, and so are all those who will submit to be governed by laws which rich men have made for their own security, for the cowardly whelps have not the courage otherwise to defend what they get by their knavery.

“You are a devilish conscientious rascal I am a free Prince, and I have as much Authority to make War on the whole World.”

It is the second death rumour surrounding the Rocky actor in as many years.

Facebook users reported seeing a fraudulent message in September 2016 claiming Stallone had been found dead at his LA home.

It was later exposed as a hoax after it emerged it was linked to a website known for creating and sharing celebrity death hoaxes.

But the rumour returned to social media today.

The return of the hoax appears to have been sparked by him sharing a fan poster for Creed II the next instalment in the Rocky film series.

After seeing Slys face on the advert, some people on social media still convinced that he was dead from the last hoax reacted with confusion.

RIP messages began to circulate online, with some claiming Sly had died from prostate cancer.

Twitter users were seen asking each other if the Rocky star had really passed away as the Chinese whispers spread like wildfire.

One wrote: Is Sylvester Stallone dead or is Facebook lying again?

Another wrote: Omg I thought Sylvester Stallone was dead!! I hate the Internet

And a third tweeted: So the sick hoaxes have started again!!

Silvester Stallone is NOT dead!!!!

The last time he was declared dead by the internet, the Rambo actor was forced to prove he was alive by posting a picture of himself on social media.

He uploaded a picture of himself pulling a punch-up pose with Russian boxer Sergey Kovalev.

Stallone responded to the latest hoax by urging fans to ignore the sick rumours and said he was “still punching”.

His brother Frank also weighed in to assure fans of Sly’s he was OK and to attack the trolls spreading the suggestions he had died.

80. Is it illegal to smoke cannabis in your home in the UK and what can your neighbours do if youre smoking weed?19:50[−]

CANNABIS has been completely illegal in the UK since 1971, but now calls are growing for the laws restricting the Class-B drug to be relaxed.

Here’s everything you need to know about cannabis, including whether you can smoke it at home…

The Class-B drug carries a prison sentence and fine as a maximum punishment for possession

Is it illegal to smoke weed in your own home?

Like all drugs in Britain, weed is regulated extremely stringently by the government.

The Class-B substance carries a maximum five-year sentence and an unlimited fine if you’re caught in possession of it.

Meanwhile, supply and production of the drug could land you a hefty 14-year sentence and an unlimited fine.

As those harsh punishments suggest, it’s completely illegal to smoke weed anywhere in Britain – including on your own property.

However, some police forces have taken a more laid-back attitude to the recreational drug, which is believed to be the most popular in the UK.

Prosecution rates for cannabis possession are as low as 15 per cent in Cornwall and Devon, while Durham Police have said they will no longer target recreational users at all.

What can you do if your neighbours are smoking cannabis?

If you suspect your neighbours are smoking weed in their house you have the right to contact the police.

Your anonymous tip-off will probably ensure that your neighbour gets a knock on their door, which could result in a search if the officers share your suspicions.

They could be charged if they are found to be in possession of cannabis, although this is all dependent on their previous convictions.

Campaigners have highlighted the medicinal benefits of cannabis as an argument for legalising it
Getty Images

Where is weed smoking legal?

Weed has been legalised for personal use in a number of countries, including Norway, the Netherlands and Portugal, which decriminalised the use of all drugs in 2001.

Recently it has also become legal for medical and recreational use across much of the United States, with California the most recent state to allow for recreational use of it.

Campaigners have highlighted the potential health benefits of cannabis, but only when used in moderation.

The drug has been suggested to reduce symptoms in patients who suffer from seizures and chronic pain.

In Australia, Puerto Rico, Poland, Czech Republic, Canada, Turkey, Croatia and Macedonia it is legal for medicinal purposes.
